Essendon Royals has a range of programs across team football for Mini-roos, Juniors and Seniors for both girls and boys as well as our Academy & Aldi Mini-Roos Kickoff programs


Our Club


The Royals began life in 1959 as Unione Sportiva Triestina. The name reflected the Italian roots, specifically the city of Trieste, of its founders. Since those early days the Club has experienced its fair share of promotions and relegations. It has played in virtually every division including the Victorian Premier League. Four mergers over that period have also seen the Club’s name change fairly frequently. The last merger with East Brunswick-Ivanhoe SC in 1994 added Royals to the club's name. Despite all these changes, the Club continues to follow the tradition of the Club’s founders, providing the local football community with an opportunity to indulge their passion for the World Game.   



We pride ourselves on being an open and welcoming club but we also have limited playing space and coaches. Our mini-roos boys and youth boys teams are at current capacity. We are encouraging more growth in our girls teams and young women's teams. Please make sure if you are interested in playing at Royals to fill in our expression of interest form. As we develop our facilities and possibly acquire new facilities we will be able to provide more membership opportunities within the community.
